This incredible example of scrimshaw on a genuine whales tooth was purchased by my late Father in 1970 in Lahaina, Maui. As the pictures I have show, the tooth is approximately 4 1/4" Tall...and at the base, it is approximately 2 1/4" wide. The tooth sat on my Father's desk for over 33 years until his passing, and as such it is in excellent condition with no marks, scratches or chips. Once again, this is an actual Whales Tooth---NOT a molded "resin" copy.
Again. This was purchased by my late Father in 1970 in Lahaina, Maui...
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Can you take a photograph of the large end (not the tip) showing the inside of the tooth?
Also, I notice an inscription just below the large oval illustration - what does that say?
